    The Shippon is a lovely cottage in picturesque North Cornwall and is an ideal bolt hole for a quiet get away. The area is incredibly beautiful with lots to do and see. Bude is not too far away for an enjoyable day out and to obtain provisions. The area is good for walking, including along the beautiful coast. The Shippon is very clean and comfortable and we found all arrangements to be straight forward. The hosts live in the adjoining farm house and were on hand to welcome us, with refreshments, to the cottage. A nice cream tea was also provided during our stay. We would recommend this cottage and stay there again ourselves.

    We had lovely time. Fantastic hosts made our stay a pleasure. The cottage is full of lovely details that make that difference from good to great. We would highly recommend it to anyone.

    Very well presented cottage, with a good welcome from the owners. A good base to see the coast and other Cornwall/Devon attractions.

    We would recommend this property. We would not use the property again as we have toured all the surrounding area of Cornwall/Devon.

    A nice cottage in a nice rural location. Very friendly owners who welcomed us very warmly. We found the cottage rather shabby chic which other reviewers seem to like. In our opinion though, for the price paid and a five star recommendation, a little modernisation might be nice and the bathroom could do with a refurbishment. Otherwise, all okay.

    A great place to stay, from the very warm welcome by the owners to the comfort of the cottage with all the facilities we could want, being ideal for those less able. We were within easy distance to Bude and other local sites including a very short drive to Morwenstow and the coast. We would certainly stay again.
